**1. Homework Statement**

Show that the function [tex]\Psi(x,t)=Asin(kx- \omega t)[/tex] does not satisfy the time-independent Schrodinger Equation.

**2. Homework Equations**

Time independet SE

**3. The Attempt at a Solution**

I think i have to solve for derivative of [tex]\Psi(x,t)/t[/tex] and second derivative of [tex]\Psi(x,t)/x[/tex] but i'm not sure how to answer the question.

I attempted to differentiate the wave function with respect to time and space so that i got

[tex]\partial\Psi(x,t)/\partial t = -\omega Acos(kx-\omegat)[/tex]

and that [tex]\partial^2\Psi(x,t)/\partial x^x = -kAsin(kx-\omegat)[/tex]

If so, how do i prove that the original function does not satisfy the TDSE?
